Fujitsu Shows Paper Thin Flexible Color Display

 |  |  |  |  |  October 3, 2006


Toshiba Paper-Thin Display PrototypeSo called electronic paper and electronic ink technologies have been showing alot of promise lately, especially with the upcoming release of Sony’s eBook Reader coming out next month.

At this week’s CEATEC show in Tokyo, Fujitsu showed off a prototype of a 7.8-inch paper-thin panel that can show 4,096 colors. The device shown was in a rigid eBook reader device, but the technology is capable of being used in flexible displays as well. In addition, this new prototype does not require that power be applied to display the image once it’s drawn, reducing power consumption significantly.

Refesh times are still a little slow – ranging from one to four seconds, depending on image complexity.
